IPhone X Plus: More details emerge about plans for 2018 iPhones

Apple Reported to Announce 6.5-Inch OLED iPhone and 6.1-Inch LCD Model Year

This is in spite of Apple's decision to move forward with OLED screens for its flagship handsets.

The LCD iPhone, meanwhile, will cost between $650 and $900.

If Apple does use metal backs for the next iPhone, Casetek, a subsidiary of iPhone assembler Pegatron, could become a supplier for the first time.

"The 6.1-inch LCD model will likely sport a metal back [like older iPhone handsets] that will come in several colors", said the source, adding that the two OLED handsets will come in two sizes: one either 6.2 or 6.3 inches long, and the other 5.8 inches.

After facing troubles with iPhone X which has been ranked even lower than iPhone 8 by Consumers Report because of its easily breakable sleek glass body, Apple is planning to change course.

Apple is likely to release another new iPhone with a liquid crystal display next year, according to a source privy to the company's product designs.

Nikkie also told that new iPhone will be assembled by a new manufacturer. And now, there are reports that Apple will be launching three phones in 2018 as well. Its screen will not be equipped with Force Touch feature. The information was shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kou.

Alongside this metal-backed iPhone, the source claims Apple is tentatively planning two new OLED handsets, one of which would be around 5.8 inches (like the iPhone X, which is now Apple's only OLED phone) and one of roughly 6.3 inches.

First spotted by GizmoChina, Nomura claims that LCD display iPhone which is expected to launch in 2018 will feature an edge-to-edge design similar to the iPhone X. There will be a single camera setup on the rear and is also expected to come with FaceID feature. The phone will come alongside another OLED phone which will be the "Plus" model of the 5.8-inch iPhone. So it's best to take all these rumors with a grain of salt.

Another source claims that Casetek, a supplier of Apple has been experimenting with new casing designs for the 2018 LCD iPhone.
